The Passionate Attachment
A Press TV report provides further evidence of what readers of The Passionate Attachment have known for some time — Israel has been quietly but unequivocally supporting regime change in Damascus:
Deputy Minister for the Development of the Negev and the Galilee Ayoob Kara’s bureau chief has met with Syrian insurgents in Bulgaria as Tel Aviv’s official envoy.
Mendi Safadi held the meeting during his recent visit to Bulgaria.
Israel’s ambassador to Sofia said he was not aware of the schedule for the meeting, and was left out of the talks.
Safadi, however, insisted that his trip to Bulgaria was at the request of an unnamed body within the Israeli regime.
He claimed to have extensive connections with Syrian insurgents, hinting that he had organized meetings between Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and anti-Damascus figures.
Sadafi said there are things that he could not tell the media.
The meeting comes on the heels of remarks made by Israeli spy chief Dan Meridor, who had voiced Tel Aviv’s support for a regime change in Syria.
